You may get a little irritable with each other, you may snap occasionally and you may even end up having a full-blown argument! But for the most part, you suck it up, apologise and generally get on…

But then there are those annoying colleagues who just seem to be utterly oblivious to how annoying they actually are – the ones who refuse to change.

Do you recognise any of them?

I know it’s not an easy topic to discuss and it can be scary to bring it up – but life really is too short to hate your job – especially because of one idiot.

Happy Friday folks – have a lovely weekend.
